Smarter Technologies is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted for IoT Innovation of the Year at the prestigious Tech Excellence Awards 2023. This award recognises a product or service with the potential to change what we do and how we do it.  

Smarter Technologies is a UK-based IoT company that specialises in developing and providing smart solutions for a diverse range of clients, including utilities companies, security companies, public sector, defence sector, manufacturers, large businesses, and property managers. Smarter Technologies’ proprietary data network, Orion, The Real-Time Data Network™, sets it apart from competitors. Orion is an end-to-end, low-power, long-range radio solution that is independent of a customer’s own broadband, channel congestion, and GSM data costs. The network’s low frequency protects it from the network dead spots that affect WiFi or Bluetooth, and Orion has far greater structural penetration of buildings, obstacles, and even underground. 

Orion works in conjunction with Smarter Technologies’ front-end SmarterView digital twin platform to provide real-time data intelligence with significantly less power, interference, and infrastructure requirements than other solutions on the market today. Smarter Technologies also offers end-to-end solutions, focusing on sustainability, customisation, and expertise, which allows them to offer more advanced and innovative solutions compared to other companies that focus solely on IoT technology. 

In 2022, Smarter Technologies achieved notable business growth, with increased demand for Orion and the extension of our sales programme into multiple countries. With thousands of receiving stations available to send data to a single cloud, Orion has recently surpassed LoRaWAN in terms of open coverage in the UK, becoming the UK’s most established LPWAN network. Smarter Technologies also introduced SmarterView, a powerful monitoring tool and alert system, which has enhanced Orion’s usability. 

“As an IoT company, being shortlisted for the IoT Innovation of the Year award is a great honour for Smarter Technologies. Our dedication to providing end-to-end, sustainable, and customisable solutions for our clients is reflected in the success of our Orion data network and SmarterView platform. We’re proud to be leading the way in IoT technology and look forward to continuing to innovate and provide value to our clients,” says Matthew Margetts, Sales and Marketing Director at Smarter Technologies. 

The winners of the Tech Excellence Awards 2023 will be announced on May 18th, 2023, at the Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin. Smarter Technologies is honoured to be recognised for its innovation and looks forward to the event.
